10 days until Continental / Amex miles transfer ends

by on Tue September 20, 2011 • 4 Comments

It’s just 10 days until the Continental / American Express mile transfer arrangement ends. We’re holding out until the last minute in case some sort of offer comes up, but at this point it appears there won’t be any bonus. We just got a mailer from Continental reminding us to transfer our points by September 30th or lose the opportunity, but no bonus was mentioned.

Maybe it’s for the better — United / Continental have been more sparing with bonus mile offers, and perhaps that’s part of why miles are so much easier to redeem with them than Delta, the other big American Express partner.

Note that point transfers are instant, and you can transfer up to 999,999 miles per day to Continental. So plan accordingly, but you can wait until the very end.

But in the mean time if you’ve always wanted to turn American Express Membership Rewards points into United miles — you have 10 days to take advantage of a rare merger-induced opportunity. Although your transfer from American Express will be to Continental — you can now transfer Continental miles to your United account 1:1 instantly, and back and forth too. Go ahead and take advantage of it if you’ve got an account you wanted to top off.

We’re going to transfer over a portion of our Amex miles to Continental/United. There are still some good reward deals with Amex, like 68,000 miles in business class to Europe from the East Coast using mile transfer partner ANA.

And if you’re a Continental / United flyer wondering what to do after the American Express deal ends, read our review of your options.

    That’s time which can be spent generating new business, recruiting
    staff, or whatever else you should squeeze into you busy day.
    Ever since the arrival from the World Wide Web, information haas risen exponentially.
    But I contend the way to riches and opportunity and blessing (as well as any other
    positive adjective you insert) is by developing and implementing a gicing attitude.
